to what republican senator lindsey graham had to say about his former lunch partner. >> chuck hagel, if confirmed to be secretary of defense would be the most antagonistic secretary of defense toward the state of israel in our nation's history. he has long severed his ties with the republican party. this is an in-your-face nomination by the president to all of white house are supportive of israel. i don't know what his management experience is regarding the pentagon, little if any. so i think it's an incredibly controversial choice. and it looks like the second term of barack obama is going to be an in-your-face term. >> well, senator hagel is a straight talker from the midwest. he'll give you an unvarnished opinion, and very outspoken. but he has stated his unequivocal total support for israel, saying critics have completely distorted his record. graham predicted other republicans would have a hard time with hagel's nomination. and it just makes you wonder what is really behind all this. senator graham complained that hagel had cut ties with the republican party. but obviously pres
. south carolina republicans senator lindsey graham has been one of the most ardent critics of how the administration has handled the benghazi attack. he joins us live tonight from columbia, south carolina. good evening, senator. >> thank you for having me. >> senator let's first start with your reaction to the release of this tunisian. >> i don't know if it's justified or not but it's like pulling teeth to get the administration to engage. it wrote the tunisian government and saying it was unsemiable not to grant an interview without a lawyer. they did give the f.b.i. access to this man. i don't know the result of the interview butly try to get to the bottom of it. i didn't take much effort to get the tunisians to cooperat cooperate. i manual what would have happened if the president of the united states would have picked up the phone and called the prime minister to say this is a priority for the country. >> bret: do you think the administration that the national security effort of the administration is going after those responsible for the benghazi libya attack? >> it doesn't se

, some of that does tend to melt away. you're right. lindsey graham was on cnn's "state of the union" yesterday calling this an in your face nomination and basically saying this is going to be a very controversial pick for president obama. we should note the white house just put out some official guidance at 1:05 this afternoon the president will come out and make a personnel announcement. we expect that to be the announcement of chuck hagel for defense secretary and john brennan for director of the cia. but getting back to chuck hagel, you mentioned some of his credentials just a few moments ago. he is not only a republican senator who served in these halls with many of these same senators who might be opposing him or asking him tough questions, he also served in veet na vietnam. carol, he took controversial positions over the years and made some controversial statements. he opposed the iraq surge, the surge of troops into iraq to help stabilize that country during the second term of george w. bush. he has from time to time opposed unilateral sampnctions on iran. that also raised th
upset senator graham and other members of the senate who might be concerned about some of the things he said in the past. he'll be working for the president. when working for the president you follow the president's policies. i don't see this prior statement as being -- first off, they may -- they may have been wrong. he may have made some statements which were inappropriate, as he did. but everybody does, i guess. and now he's going to be working for the president. and carrying the president's policies forward. i think he'll probably carry them forward rather effectively. the thing i like about chuck, and i've known him for a long time. we had our differences when we were in the senate to say the least because he's a pretty strong personality. but i like the fact that he thinks outside the box. the defense department is going to go through a major adjustment right now. for the next few years as the budget pressures come down on them fairly strongly. plus, you're shifting from a boots on the ground philosophy of how you fight terrorism to more of an intelligence driven terrorist battle,

that there is, again, a legal necessity issue that is presented. if you go back to graham versus florida it is true that justice kennedy and the supreme court, the majority of the court said that you cannot impose life without parole for a non manslaughter offense for an add less is sent and therefore, he drew the line's did in roeper versus simmons at saying that at less sent are simply different. their brains are different than adults. they're less developmentally mature. what happened to terrence graham? he got sentenced. he didn't get sentenced to life without parole that was now unconstitutional. if you actually read what happened at the sentencing hearing for terrence graham, there was, again, dueling psychologists with a scrist and the state sigh kentucky scrist made the claim he was suffering from anti-personality disorder and in his view, no one recovers from anti-personality disorder and therefore he should be put away virtually for the rest of his life and the defense expert is said there has already been demonstration of his increased maturity and that i do think that he will

interest, i take an oath of office to the constitution. >> lindsey graham said his former colleague would, quote, be the most antagonistic secretary of defense toward israel in the nation's history. mr. hagel hotly disputes that, he has many defenders including those in the jewish community. hagel has apologized for the tone of his opposition in 1998 to an openly gay ambassadorial candidate. he called him openly, aggressively gay, and nowinsens. joining me now are margaret and peter. margaret, full disclosure, you helped start a group which is now opposed to senator hagel's nomination. what are your problems with him? >> well, which i'm actually not involved with anymore, but i understand the perspective of them. there are a lot of folks who have concerns about some of the things hagel has said in the past and that's why we'll have a full -- >> specifically about israel? >> specifically about israel, specifically about iran. it's not just what he said. he's got a very long voting record of not taking voting positions or signing letters that suggest a stalwart supporter of israel. >> but h

you very much. thank you. graham, you're an arms and militaria expert so i would think you'd wear some kind of military insignia. but every time i see you you've got your blue peter badge on. so, what's the story behind it? well, blue peter had a huge influence on me when i was a child and i always remember that valerie singleton and chris trace used to ask us children to send in drawings and things we'd made. so, one year when i was very small, i did a drawing, a sort of geometric-- lots of multi-colored things-- and sent it in and a few weeks later, my mother handed me a little envelope with a bulge in it in the middle. and i opened it, terribly excited pulled out a piece of card with a blue peter badge on it and a little letter from biddy baxter, the editor. oh, yes! well done you. because i tried to do that. i sent a little toy and i didn't get anything. oh, no! i know! i can't think why. but you're still wearing it today. now, that is quite unusual, isn't it? well, it really is one of my favorite objects. and blue peter itself was

-conservatives, the bush ii folks, mccain, lieberman, lindsey graham, and the others and what hagel stands for, john, is non- interventionist foreign policy. we don't go to war unless vital interests are at stake. we put our own country first. i think this is going to be the battle royal in the coming months. >> eleanor. >> nobody is a shoe-in with the republican party that fails to defeat president obama for reelection but still seems determined to make him a failed president but jacob lew is as close to a shoe-in as there can be. the only complaint you hear is that he hasn't spent enough time on wall street, and for a lot of democrats that's actually a positive attribute. so he will be confirmed. and i believe senator hagel will also be confirmed, although that's a bigger fight, and his remarks about israel that somehow he isn't tough enough on israel, his objection to sanctions was that they were unilateral. he now supports the current sanctions. he is certainly not antiisrael. those arguments will be put aside. he is there to cut the budget, and he's the man for the moment. he has the appe
: that is lindsay graham objecting to chuck hagel's nomination to be the next secretary of defense. and hague sell not the only nominee that will face opposition, and here with that story is democratic strategist peter fenn. thanks for joining us in "the war room" again. >> thanks. great to be with you governor. >> jennifer: okay is the president going to have a really big fight on his hands, or is this just a bunch of media making about it because a few are raising their head and objecting? >> it's really hard to tell how much the republicans are going to push this. they are itching for a fight, governor. they just got kind of beaten up. boehner is in trouble. so they are picking a fight with the president a bit on this one. lindsay graham is looking over his shoulder worried about his base, so you have got a little of that going on but right there have only been three republicans who have stated their for-sure opposition to him. i'm old enough to remember when john tower was getting beaten above the head and shoulders, but there was a guy who had serious alcohol prob
important to have happen before the kerry confirmation. i think it will happen that way. >>> lindsey graham is threatening to delay the nomination of john brennan for cia director unless the white house releases more information about the bengahzi attack. senator graham claims the white house has repeatedly ignored his requests for information and calls the move "an unfortunate yet necessary step." last month an independent review found systemic failures in leadership at the state department. at least four department officials have been removed from their post as a result of that investigation. >>> the only known suspect in connection with the september 11th consulate attack has been released by officials in tunisia due to lack of evidence. >>> the u.s. preparing for a withdrawal from afghanistan by the end of 2014, the white house considering a plan that would leave no american troops behind, not even in supporting roles. that's according to a national security adviser in the administration. despite recommendations by general john allen for the u.s. to leave as many as 15,000 troops, this
before congress. >> senator lindsey graham of south carolina says he's not going to vote to confirm john brennan until he gets more answers, answers from hillary clinton, from others at the cia, from the white house presumably. what are you hearing about this? >> well, senator graham is saying it has nothing to do with john brennan per se. what it does is centers around these questions around these talking points that a u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice did in those sunday talk shows. there was this deleted reference to al qaeda involvement which was in the classified version. it was taken out when used by ambassador rice and senator graham has questions about who changed that. the intelligence committee has spoken to this. they said that they changed it and more specifically that the cia changed those talking points but senator graham is not satisfied. he says he has more questions before john brennan is confirmed and while he's not on the senate's committee on intelligence, he could hold up the nomination. >> and we're going to be speaking in the next hour to senator john mccain.
. karen, lindsey graham saying this is an in your face nomination. he would be the most antagonistic secretary of defense. sharp words, which probably p r portends something more than just policy disagreements. >> true, although at this point lindsey graham has kind of lost all if not most of his credibility because he sort of has been balking at just about everything, and he has been pretty much following john mccain's lead on most things. >> it's worse that we don't know where john mccain is on this. >> he has been such a follower on so many issues so far that i -- him saying that, you know, this is a guy who is running the atlantic council and that's out of the mainstream. i think there's a little -- a credibility check. the challenge, i think, for the administration is going to be that this nomination means they're going to have to do work on both the democratic and the republican side, and, you know, usually when you are a democratic president, it's who are the key men who have worked on these nominations. who are the key republican senators? we're going to have to go and see,
just heard senator lindsey graham saying this is kind of an in your face nomination, nothing bipartisan about it. so which is it? >> there are a lot of republicans who feel like senator lindsey graham, that former senator from nebraska chuck hagel stepped away from the republican party, namely in his firm opposition of the surge in iraq, when the party's nominee at the time, john mccain was running a presidential campaign counting the surge under george w. bush. the surge of course the troops going in to iraq, stepping up the troop presence there to try to get iraq under control. you'll remember then senator obama opposed the iraq surge as well. so, the republican party for the most part, many members believe that chuck hagel stepped away from the foreign policy element back then, and was very adamant. he was for the iraq war before he was against it and then was very vocal about being against the surge in iraq and that's really where some of that back and forth started. then you add on top of that some of the statements that he's being criticized for about israel, and iran, and hamas,
